Derderian Academy of Martial Arts
My name is Raffi A. Derderian, Head Instructor of our martial arts school here in Johnston.Since 1993, I’ve dedicate my life to bringing the physical – and spiritual – benefits of martial arts to Rhode Island and throughout the northeast part of our country.
Our classes are geared for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes. Our academy has become a community of learning and growth.
Id love nothing more than for you to become a part of it. That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape too.
Together, these tree elements lead to a happier, healthier life.
Martial arts is a amazing tool for inner-growth and development. The hard work and patience required to perfect each move builds discipline, focus and determination.

Place was unbelievably amazing very clean very professional and the owners where like family the way they treated me definitely have a heart for people to develop not just their body but Mind and Spirit which is a noble quality to have in this day and age I see one of the owners passionately lovingly and with concern talked to one of his students for an interview the following day which says what type of man he is highly recommended to whoever desires this type of discipline and structure,,Rico
Such a great place to send your kids, they have really great manners such as teaching your kids respect and to be responsible. This place is really great once again 😀.

“I am a black belt now but besides that I’ve learned respect and discipline.”
“Thank you to all the staff!”
“This program is amazing and the environment is so amazing!!”
My younger cousin went here (I was planning on sending my son) up until she was expelled due to hospitalizing a child for calling her the N word. The child that called her a racial slur was not expelled and when my cousin showed up the next day the child was there, but my cousin had to leave. So what I get from this, is that children are allowed to use racial slurs with no consequences. I thank god that I found this out before spending the $180 a week to send my kid. Now my business will go elsewhere and the 4 other children that were going to sign up with my son will go elsewhere as well. Such a shame that kids are allowed to use racial slurs in the year 2021! Do better!
The best! My kids attend after school , but this is more than just an after school program. They are absolutely wonderful with kids, teaching respect, honesty, and how to get along with others, as well as Taekwondo. If there is ever an issue, I feel confident knowing it will be handled and my kids are in the best of hands. Thank you to all the staff!
This program has helped me a lot, I have gained confidence. I also have made great friends through this process. I am a black belt now but besides that I’ve learned respect and discipline.
EP Martial Arts: Self-Defense and Fitness
EP Martial Arts was started by three friends searching for a better place to train and share their passion for martial arts with their community!
Bart Axelrod met Ty Wesley when he was teaching at the Seekonk YMCA 12 years ago. Bart immediately liked Ty and was very impressed with his skills and teaching ability. The class he took with Ty was great – he learned a lot and loved the sparring. Soon after, Ty stopped teaching at the Y and began running classes in his basement in Providence.
At the time, Bart was studying Judo at Celtic Judo in Rehoboth with his coach Wayne Dickenson He and his friend Al also worked out regularly with Ty. After a few years training in the basement and with their shared passion for martial arts, they decided it was time to find an adequate place to train and start their own school.
It took a while to get off the ground but they finally opened Sanshou Fighting and Fitness on September 2012. They later changed the name to San Shou Martial Arts because they weren’t just about fighting and they wanted parents to feel comfortable sending their kids to train.
Says Bart, “We’re having a lot of fun working out and teaching. We have been joined by several great instructors teaching different arts and we now offer classes 7 days per week!”

Keith Allan’s Combative Arts Group
I am Keith Allan, senior full instructor of Keith Allans Combative Arts Group. Our goal is to give the students a well rounded Martial Arts education and not just a one way mind set. I have been involved in martial arts for over 40 plus years and traveled the world teaching and training to always be sharing and growing as a person and as a whole. I do this not for myself but for my students. My fighting background is in several different Martial Arts from Wing Chun, Hung Gar, Choy Li Fut, Southern Praying Mantis, BJJ and a few other Kung Fu styles. The other arts available are, Filipino Kali, Western Boxing, Indonesian Silat, French Savate, Muay Thai and my primary focus is the art of Jeet Kune Do. For those who might not know Jeet Kune Do is the great Martial Art developed by the late Bruce Lee. The technique was passed down by a few of Bruce’s students and presently Tim Tackett who heads a few different classes out of Redlands, California is one of the few remaining from the original members of “The Backyard Group.” Tim Tackett instructed & trained other Martial Artists & Myself for the past 20 years, so come challenge your self and become a healthy, proficient and disciplined Martial Artist.
